Is Tom Sandoval a diver on Masked Singer?

Even after “Scandoval,” “Vanderpump Rules” plays the lead role Tom Sandoval lets his bad boy bravery work for him. Like Ariana Madix, Tom wants to take advantage of his 15 minutes of fame. While he may not receive recommendation after recommendation like his scorned lover, Tom has branched out into a few other channels.

In addition to performing in his band, Tom took part in Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test, a spin-off of the British series SAS: Who Dares Wins. But has Tom thrown his ring into Fox’s most popular show? The Masked Singer? We think so!

A new and elaborate costume was revealed an advertising campaign for the upcoming season of The Masked Singer. The diver stepped out wearing an antique gold brass deep-sea diving helmet with a friendly orange octopus attached. The costume could easily be a reference to Tom’s previous role in the military show, which featured Navy Seals as personnel. In the promotional package, Diver noted, “I’m usually pretty excited, but lately I’ve been lost in the abyss.”

It wasn’t hard to guess that the mysterious voice could be Tom’s, especially after his greeting on Vanderpump Rules. Not only is “pumped” a reference to Lisa Vanderpump’s bar, but the term also explains his over-the-top enthusiasm for almost everything. To be honest, these references are a bit superficial and lack any originality. But if Fox didn’t plan for Tom to go far in the singing competition, it would make sense that fans would have a chance to guess who he is.

As Diver continued his clue package, the familiar voice continued, “I may be the most hated creature in the ocean right now.” Again, there is no one who can take the villain label away from Tom, no matter how hard he tries. It emerged that Tom had been having a months-long affair with Rachel Leviss, which angered fans. During the reunion, he gaslighted both Ariana and Rachel, leaving no sympathy for him when it came to former fans.

Viewers attempted to boycott his band performances and even requested his firing from Vanderpump Rules for filming Rachel while she masturbated without her consent. Trolls have made it their life’s mission to constantly call out Tom for his sketchy ways, and it’s been difficult for the reality TV star to live a normal life above the water.

On the next clue, Diver told fans: “Usually I’m found under the sea, but for this clue you have to look up to the sky.” After the joke, Diver revealed a picture of a cardinal that stunned the judges.

Although Tom now lives in Valley Village, the former model was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. Tom even graduated from Hazelwood West High School, so he has deep roots in the state. The reference made sense to loyal Bravo fans, as Tom is an avid St. Louis Cardinals supporter. He also made several trips back to St. Louis with Rachel during their affair.

Diver also had some pretty famous TomTom co-ownership properties. Not only did the underwater creature do the same tingly body roll and use the same dance moves that Tom uses on stage, but the words and rhythm of the language were spot on, right down to the enthusiastic finger-pointing at the end of the video’s silly arm dance.

Tom was also pictured with a guitar, and every Vanderpump Rules fan knows that Tom LOVES his instruments. In previous seasons he mastered the trumpet (yeah, right), with Tom choosing to also learn to play the guitar as the lead singer of Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras.

Diver hasn’t performed yet, but chances are he won’t last long, especially in a competition full of talent. The mysterious voice will most likely choose an ’80s rock song to debut his vocals. Tom remained silent on social media, probably thinking no one would ever find out it was him.
